the famous buffalo from the movie Crocodile Dundee


Since the mid 90s I have traveled each year from SE Queensland to Darwin for the dry season there.
Each time I stopped on the way in Adelaide River (100km S of Darwin) to say hello to Charlie who lived a happy retired life in a paddock next to the Adelaide River Inn.

In 2001 however I found the paddock empty.
When I asked where Charlie had got to the reply was

"Oh, he has moved to the bar now.......".


Rather puzzled I went over to the pub, and yes, there he was in all his glory, but unfortunately no longer alive. Nevertheless his memory lives on .........
